The Underwater Technology Foundation once more welcomes you to the Underwater Technology Conference (UTC), the 18th UTC since we started in 1980. We are proud to announce that Norwegian Secretary of State for Petroleum and Energy Ole Borten Moe will attend and deliver the opening address at UTC 2012.
The theme of this year’s conference ’Subsea Growth – How to make it happen?’ acknowledges that our industry faces challenges in future. Projected marked growth is record high, putting a strain on already stretched resources. Can we attract the talent and amount of people necessary to continue being innovative and developing technologies that make subsea production even more cost efficient, safe and environmentally friendly than today? At UTC 2012, some of the brightest minds in subsea technology will share their knowledge, understanding and perception of things to come. We’ll hear about long-term strategies and developments in the OG21 strategy and PROCAP. We’ll learn insight from key individuals from major subsea operators from all over the world. Suppliers and service providers will share their initiatives, developments and solutions. There will be updated market information and investor views on subsea. We will also participate in world-class networking events and you can join a field trip to visit local subsea companies.Based on last year’s success, the program committee worked hard to organize panel debates that provide value for all participants. We now present ‘Suppliers solutions’ as a follow up to ‘Subsea Chief Engineers Challenges’. You can expect to watch optimistic panel discussions about obstacles to and solutions to promote the continuous development of our industry.The content and performance of the exhibition has been further developed to facilitate more communication between different participants, thereby making it a more value added event.It is therefore the sincere hope of the UTF and UTC Programme Committee that UTC 2012 in Bergen this June will be an experience both to learn and thrive from.
